Central Sumatra - Minangkabau

Totally uncleaned very intricately worked example of Minangkabau wedding jewellery set with numerous small rubies. Registers at 12ct. gold using a Mizar M24 Professional Gold Tester. These armbands would originally have been part of the wedding regalia for a Minangkabau bride, then passed down from mother to daughter (Minagkabau culture is matrilineal).
